This may be old news for some, but I just read it today that Randy Owen, lead singer for Alabama was diagnosed ealier this year after his PSA was found to be over the NL during a routine physical.  His choice of treatment was HIFU.
diagnosed sept 2006 @ 54 years old, live in Georgia, gleason 3+4=7, (r) lobe only

psa 4.7 (psa rose 1 point per year for 3 years, urologist said still under 4 and no concern. If I can find out about PSA velocity, why didn't he know!)

Told not to have surgery at Dana Farber as cancer had already penetrated prostate, in seminal vesicles, would have positive margins. Would only treat with radiation and HT

RP Emory Atlanta December 2006. Path-negative margin, negative lymph nodes, negative SV, both Lobes involved, 40% gland involved
multifocal perineural invasion, Gleason 3+4=7

1st psa April 2007-<0.04, 6 mos-<0.04, 9 mos <0.04, 1yr <0.04, 21 mos <0.04, 2 yr 0.04 (rising?) 26 mos-0.05, 27 mos-0.04, 29 mos 0.06 Sept 09 ,<0.04 3 year <0.04 39 mo. 0.07 (rising again)

Obviously, I don't know Randy Owens personally, but we have long enjoyed his music.  And from what we read, he is a very giving person, heading up fund raisers for those less fortunate in the South, were he resides.
 
Like all Prostate Cancer patient's, we shall wish him well with his treatment and followups.
